Date August 26, 2008

The Hantu Blog lent its support to local marine group Cyrene Star Trackers by adopting a knobbly seastar at this year’s IYOR Reef Celebrations at the Botanical Gardens

The Hantu Blog believes that the marine protection movement is a dynamic one, and it takes all sorts of groups and individuals working within unique systems in the environment and society, to ensure a holistic approach towards conservation. We believe that support and understanding between local NGOs is an essential lubricant for direct or indirect collaborative effort. Whether you’re walking on the reef with the Blue Water Volunteers, doing Reef Checks with Reef Friends, volunteering with groups like Team Seagrass, Naked Hermit Crabs, or The Raffles Museum Toddycats, your work is essentially a cog in the system that keeps the whole engine that is the environmental protection framework, moving tirelessly forward and engaging every sector of society, and recognising every individuals unique skills, purpose and interests.

The Hantu Blog named it’s seastar Bibi, which is short for the Arabic word “Habibi” meaning beloved or darling. The name also has a Farsi and Persian origin, meaning “lady of the house”. A name that is both assertive and compassionate; a trait of many of our volunteers in Singapore, and around the world that dedicate their lives towards protecting the world and all its inhabitants.
